Examination Administration

Study Organization & Examinations Office

The Study Organization & Examinations Office is responsible for all administrative matters regarding your degree course, and can answer your questions regarding examinations, degree course timelines, grades and results, modules, examination regulations, curricula, etc.

We issue examination schedules and set registration periods, which are posted online and on the campus notice boards.

We can advise you about recognition of grades from previous degree programs, official requests for the Examinations Committee, and can also issue official Transcripts of Records for submission to state offices, etc.

The team also deals with registration for thesis and colloquium, and we issue exam and degree certificates.

Please don't hesitate to come and see us if you have any questions or problems regarding your degree program; we'll do our best to help.

General Information

General Provisions for Assessment Regulations (2014)

The General Provisions for Assessment Regulations (ABPO) are the provisions which are relevant to all degree programs at Hochschule Geisenheim University, and take precedence over the Special Provisions for Assessment Regulations (BBPO) set out by the individual degree programs. The Special Provisions for Assessment Regulations determine the regulation of the examining process within the degree programs and can be found in the degree program information.

Examinations (registration, notification in case of illness, attempted cheating)

The regulations regarding registration and de-registration for exams, illness notification for exams and rules of conduct in exams are determined by the Examination Committee and are applicable to all degree programs.

Dates

Teaching and examination periods are determined by the University's Academic Senate.

The Examinations Office then sets the dates for examinations and other degree-related deadlines; these can be found in the information on your degree program.

Lecture periods from 2020 - 2022

Diploma Supplement

The Diploma Supplement is intended to improve the international transparency and appropriate academic and professional recognition of qualifications (certificates, diplomas, degrees, etc.). The Diploma Supplement describes the characteristics, level, context, content, and type of degree successfully completed by the person named in the original certificate, which must be attached to the Diploma Supplement. The Diploma Supplement should be free from any value judgements, equivalence statements or recommendations for recognition. It should contain information in all eight sections. If no information is given, this should be justified.

 

Sections 1 - 7 of the Diploma Supplement contain the student's personal data.

Section 8 of the Diploma Supplement - GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE NATIONAL HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM: this section gives general information about the level of qualification and the type of institution that awarded it. See PDF download.
